Iggy Azalea & Sam Smith Share 'No. 1' Billboard Covers

Iggy Azalea is dream like on one of the four No.1 covers for Billboard mag.

The 24-year-old Aussie rapper joins Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor and Sam Smith for the special issues and opens up about her success with “Fancy”. Check it out below:

Iggy: “When I wrote it, ‘Fancy’ was another song called ‘Leave It.’ I always knew it wasn’t a hit, but it was a good song. It had such a solid beat and verses, but it needed something melodic to make it catchier, so I called Charli [XCX].

Sam: “Saturday Night Live is the thing that broke me in America, but I was very scared, and I actually begged my team and my label to not do it when we got the call. I thought it would have more impact if I had a song out and on the radio. But I was so wrong. I had a story all of a sudden, and I was on people’s iPods in the space of a week.”

Jason: “When I first heard the track ["Talk Dirty"], I loved it because it sounded exotic and Eastern. The chorus came to me immediately. I channeled my experience touring the world. You don’t need to speak the language to communicate — body language is universal.”

In case you missed it, check out Sam‘s new music video for “Like I Can“, too!
